“On the Beach”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

A place I had wanted to go to see what all the "fuss" was about and finally made it there in mid-March2014,, with 3 girlfriends. It was everything we wanted......right on the beach, great patio, well prepared food and outstand service, even though they were extremely busy.

“A "must-stop" when in town”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I am a big fan on many levels: love the area with one of the nicest clean and quiet beaches, enjoy the relaxed ambience. It's well-managed, and offers an extensive sandwich/salad /sides selection, tasty, and consistently prepared- albeit, pricier than average. This is a place that I love to recommend to friends. Great for all ages. There is a sand pit for children to enjoy and areas for birthday parties. Casual attire, including bathing suits.

“Terrific place for families...and others!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

Great location at the beach. A large garden with many picnic tables and umbrellas, as well as a firepit, a pond, and a sandpit for the kids.
You order your burger, fish, etc and are given a WiFi calling device. The food was great!
We saw dolphins passing very close in to the beach.

“Perfect place for lunch!”
Reviewed May 11, 2014 via mobile

We stopped by for lunch. It was super crowded which is usually a good sign! A gal in line recommended the Cobb salad. Another guy recommended the California Club sandwich. So we ordered both! The salad was delicious! The sandwich was really good too! We loved the atmosphere. Very beautiful park like setting on the beach.

“Great Place for Families”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

This is a casual dining place that works well for families. You place your order at a counter and then go out into a grassy outdoor are with round tables. There are umbrellas to provide shade if you don't want to sit in the sun, but it doesn't cover all the seating at the table. There is a sandbox for kids to play in while waiting to eat or after they are finished. The food was good but not exceptional. You go here more for the environment than for the food.
